Deportation Based on Name

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 1, 2007

Sunny, from Pickled Politics, blogs about how Sabbir Ahmed was almost deported simply because of his name:

A British Asian was held in a detention centre for nearly two months and threatened with deportation to Pakistan because Home Office officials believed he was a foreigner. Immigration officials assumed that Sabbir Ahmed, who speaks with a Lancashire accent, was Pakistani despite the fact that he was born in Blackburn and has a British passport.

I found this on the blog aggregator Brown Blogger Brigade.
